    Happy New Year, gents

    Here is a unique model that I am glad to finally have - Black wingtip bluchers from Leather Soul. Great companion pair for my brown RL Marlows.

    Alden resolutions for 2016
    1) send in full strap loafers for restoration
    2) rebuild boot collection after getting rid of most of them due to lack of wear. 1 black, 1 color 8, one CXL
    3) find a wearable pair of whiskey
    4) get a cordovan lhs
